This 48 page booklet is the most concise referenced booklet on chemical sensitivity. It is for the person wanting to learn about it but who is leery of tackling a big book. It is ideal for teaching your physician or convincing your insurance company, as it is fully referenced. And it is a good reference for the veteran who wants a quick concise review.

Most people have difficulty envisioning chemical sensitivity as a potential cause of everyday maladies. But the fact is that a lack of knowledge of the mechanism of chemical sensitivity can be the solo reason that holds many back from ever healing completely. Some will never get truly well simply because they do not comprehend the tremendous role chemical sensitivity plays in every disease has been pivotal in failure to get well. The principles of environmental controls are of especially vital importance for cancer victims.

If you are not completely well, you need to read this book. If you have been sentenced to a life time of drugs, whether it be for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, angina, arrhythmia, asthma, eczema, sinusitis, colitis, learning disabilities, or cancer you need this book. It matters not what your label is. What matters is whether chemical sensitivity is a factor that no one has explored that is keeping you from getting well. Most probably it is, and this is an inexpensive way to find out.

Editor reviews

Dr Rogers has been treating MCS patients and writing on the subject for many years. She is a leading expert voice for the MCS community.

This 42 page book manages to pack a great deal into such a small space and is fully referenced so is perfect for introducing your doctor or other professionals to the reality of chemical sensitivities.

Dr Rogers discusses, amongst other things, how nutritional deficiencies and genetic susceptibilities can result in MCS, and a proposed mechanism behind the spreading phenomenon, (when patients become rapidly sensitized to more and more chemicals). There is also a discussion of the role that oxidative stress plays in the development and perpetuation of chemical sensitivity. Dr. Rogers also lists the various chemicals that are most likely to be triggers for the condition and for producing symptoms once someone becomes sensitized.

A large portion of the book is dedicated to the diagnosis and treament of MCS, which of course, is exactly the information that most of those afflicted will be looking for in such a book.

This title is a fantastic introduction to MCS that provides a good overview of the condition, is well written with good references, but doesn't overwhelm the reader. If you suspect that chemicals might be causing your ill health or you simply want a good introduction to chemical sensitivity, this is the book for you. For more in depth information regarding chemicals and health, Dr. Rogers' other books are well worth a look.
